Tim Welsh leaves ESPNU to take head coaching reins at Hofstra

compiled from staff and wire reports

Hofstra University has confirmed that it has hired Tim Welsh to be its men’s basketball coach.

The former coach at Providence College and Iona College has spent the past two years as a commentator for ESPNU.

Welsh takes over for Tom Pecora, who took the job at Fordham last week.  Pecora had a record of 155-126 in nine years at Hofstra, with three straight NIT appearances from 2005-2007.

Hofstra lost in the second round of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. The Pride finshed this past season at 19-15. Hofstra joined the CAA in 2001, and eventhough it has enjoyed success on the basketball court, the administration wants “The Big Dance”.  The Pride haven’t been able to reach the NCAA tournament since becoming a member in the tough CAA.

Tim Welsh spent 10 seasons at Providence, leading the Friars to the NCAA tournament in 2001 and 2004.  His record was 160-143.  At Iona, he compiled a 70-22 record, with one NCAA and two NIT appearances.
